Navy Week Celebrated In Springfield

Navy Week Springfield coincided with the Big E, New England’s Great State Fair, and the largest of its kind on the east coast.  Springfield’s Navy Week focused on a variety of outreach opportunities having more than 100 events coordinated with corporate, civic, government, education, media, veterans and community service and diversity organizations throughout the city.  These events provided residents the opportunity to meet Sailors firsthand and provided a visible example and raised awareness about what the Navy does around the world and its importance to the public.
